March 13, 2019 By Meghan Sackman

The police are searching for a man who allegedly bit off a portion of a security guard’s finger after he was denied entry into a Jackson Heights bar last month. 

The security guard, 37, was closing down El California Sports Bar, located at 76-03 Roosevelt Ave., on Feb. 16 when the suspect approached and asked to go into the bar around 4:05 a.m.

Police say when the guard told the individual that the bar was closed the suspect became enraged and began to argue..

The argument turned physical when the unidentified man bit off part of the guard’s left pinky finger. The suspect then ran eastward on Roosevelt Avenue.

EMS transported the security guard to Bellevue Hospital where his finger was reattached before he was sent home.

The alleged attacker is described by police as white or Hispanic, medium build, with dark close cut hair and a goatee. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, black boots and a black jacket with Japanese iconography inscribed throughout.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit

“described by police as white or Hispanic”

Is there any indication that this man was an illegal immigrant, or you’re just your run-of-the-mill Trump-loving racist?

Let’s see. Jackson Heights – Hispanic Bar. You do the math. Because someone points that out, that person is a Trump supporter. Only a simpleton would think that way. You don’t exactly come across as the sharpest knife in the drawer

logic is hard

So just to be clear, no indication he was an illegal immigrant?

Just speculation he MIGHT have been hispanic?

Do you think any hisplanics in Queens aren’t illegal immigrants?

Wow no one commented on this story? Really? So some guy bites off part of a hard working security guard’s finger and no one cares? This is crazy to me. I hope this attacker gets caught and goes to jail for many years.


The only comment here that makes any sense is this one….the rest on just a bunch of clowns!

No I am not a moderator and I do have a job thanks for your concern. I just get surprised how no matter what the story is in this website whether it’s a pervert on the 7 train, a traffic accident, or overcrowded public transportation the comments always lead to trump or illegal immigrants. That’s all anyone ever talks about no matter what the story is.

Real brave of you to talk trash under the name anonymous. I bet you yelk at loud schoolchildren from your fiurth floor window with the lights off. Wow what a tough guy!
